Content of this course:

Japan has the world’s eighth-largest exclusive economic zone, with abundant seabed resources and wind available. This potential is largely unused. Japan wishes to utilise this potential as part of the nation’s growth strategy. Therefore, Japan aims to increase the number of offshore engineers to 10.000 by 2030 to serve a 50 trillion yen market. Currently, only 2.200 offshore engineers work in this sector, because of the shortcoming in knowledge and education in the offshore industry. To realise this increase in engineers, the Ocean Innovation Consortium was launched in 2016, cultivating human resources involved in offshore development. One of the vehicles to address this challange is by providing professional engineering courses. With its experience in Europe and expertise on topics ranging from EPC contracting, transport & logistics, design of windturbine foundations and floating foundations, DOB-Academy is well-prepared to educate and motivate the (young) professionals in Japan.
